I have a question for those with experience about whether an offer is legit

I'm new to this and very confused. I received a response from someone I sent a proposal to. They are called Express Writers, and asked for a headshot, W-9, pics of government ID. Is this a legitimate client, or something else? There are red flags, like no payment method and that he they can't receive messages. I can't tell if this is a job, or another site like this one trying to get me to follow a link offsite. .

it's a scam. none of the clients require any of your private information, ever.

Seriously, thanks for checking in here. The main red flag is, as the other reply said, they want financial information. Also, when someone says they can't reveice messages, I end the conversation politely.
